The recommended dose is 400 mg orally once daily with food.
Treatment may be continued as long as there is no evidence of progressive disease or unacceptable toxicity.
ZOLINZA capsules should not be opened or crushed [see How Supplied/Storage and Handling (16)].
If a patient is intolerant to therapy, the dose may be reduced to 300 mg orally once daily with food. The dose may be further reduced to 300 mg once daily with food for 5 consecutive days each week, as necessary.
Reduce the starting dose to 300 mg orally once daily with food in patients with mild to moderate hepatic impairment (bilirubin 1 to 3 × ULN or AST > ULN). There is insufficient evidence to recommend a starting dose for patients with severe hepatic impairment (bilirubin > 3 × ULN). [see Use in Specific Populations (8.6) and Clinical Pharmacology (12.3)].
